Continuing Disability Reviews (CDRs) are the Social Security medical reviews for people with developmental disabilities that happen every few years and require lengthy medical history information. As a result, many people lose their social security benefits if the CDR isn’t completed correctly or timely. In 2019 the Social Security Administration (SSA) proposed to increase the frequency of required CDRs but advocates pushed back and defeated the proposal. SSA has opened up a comment period on the CDR form and is continuing to argue that it only takes people with disabilities or their helpers an hour to fill out. If you complete a CDR or assist a person with a disability in completing CDRs then we urge you to submit a comment about the actual burden of the CDR. Comments are due on Monday, October 18 by 11:59 p.m. before midnight and may be submitted here:
